May Lex lineup revealed

Here's the star studded lineup for the May 17 edition of the Lexiconjury reading series, which I'm guest curating:

Gregory Betts
Derek McCormack
TEAM (Brea Burton, Jill Hartman, and Cara Hedley)

Speaking of TEAM, check out this new publication from MODL Press:

"Pirate Lore" - Brea Burton, Jill Hartman, and Cara Hedley

Examining the language surrounding the sexed roles men and women adopt, Burton, Hartman, and Hedley follow pirates, hockey players, and belly dancers through a constantly shifting and collaborative poetic. "the language we use / is the language we desire" as if our choices determine what we will be like, not the sex or role we are assigned.

Brea Burton, Jill Hartman, and Cara Hedley met studying English Literature and Creative Writing at the University of Calgary, where they decided to embark on this collaborative project. Performing in Calgary, Scotland, and, pretty soon, Toronto under the now-abandoned moniker "The Twat Team", these three writers have wowed audiences with their flair, their unequalled wordsmithery, and the soon-to-be-patented "Pirate Poetry Drinking Game".

Produced in an unnumbered edition of 75 copies. Pirate/Parrot cover art gloriously rendered by Sandy Lam. 20 pp. 5.5" x 5.5". $7.00. If interested, please contact ryan fitzpatrick (

Spread the word.
